Tyco International Ltd. has agreed to pay the state of New Jersey $73 million to resolve state charges of securities fraud. Under the settlement agreement, Tyco will pay $73.3 million to New Jersey’s Division of Investment. The state alleged in a 2002 lawsuit that its pension fund suffered major losses due to fraud, including insider trading at Tyco, accounting improprieties, and former Tyco executives not disclosing millions of dollars in personal loans they got from the company. Tyco was a classic example of a corporation whose bosses let greed lead to corruption and then to serious problems for the company and its bosses.
